You want a Faraday cage. There are do-it-yourself instructions for making one out of aluminum foil. You can also approximate one by trying prebuilt metal boxes like microwave ovens, metal filing cabinets, or refrigerators. Just put your device inside to see whether it blocks the GPS signal.

Yes You can do it if you have root access first you must Download the FakeGPS the link for the one i suggest is Download Form Here and Change Location Mode to Device Only(preferred) and turn on Mock Location from Developer options and set the location in the app this will spoof the GPS and its Working Fine !! :)

Just factory reset my phone *frustated =w= And I think, I know what's the problem that made my phone rebooting like that. The Fake GPS app itself, I've been testing it after a few factory reset.. well i think it's a bug =w= My advice: Never Install Fake GPS

As a test confirmed, this is possible via corresponding apps: on the device providing the GPS signal ("B"), you will need an app to Use your Droid as BT-GPS Mouse. An approved candidate would be Bluetooth GPS Output for this. on the device where you want to access that "external GPS" from ("A"), you'll need an app to Use an external GPS mouse. Approved ...

IT's the gapps!! I has the same problem; GPS stopped working after two CM11 updates. I reverted back to Android 4.1 but still no GPS. I renistalled cm-11-20160424-NIGHTLY-hercules (I'm becoming a pro at this by now) but still no GPS. After an idea to reinstall gapps-kk-20140606-signed after the updated....GPS started working again. I tested it with Google ...

An app can detect when mock locations are enabled. It's quite simple to do. See http://stackoverflow.com/q/6880232/4107809.

You can set your location services to battery saver in your settings -> location -> mode. That will leave location services on using network and wifi only.and not use gps.

There are distinct sources of location information that are commonly called "GPS", but are more accurately called location services. Sources in decreasing order of accuracy: Bluetooth - Due to its short range, if you can hear known Bluetooth devices, you know you must be close. Actual GPS - Your phone listens for satellites and computes its location ...

The problem is called geometric dilution of precision. In a simplistic view, the GPS system computes the distances between the receiver and a set of at least 4 visible satellites. Each of those distances has precision/error associated with it. The precision/error of the final location fix depends not only on the individual distance precision/error values, ...

Android collects information about WiFi routers through the normal course of WiFi operation. You cannot get around this fact if you want to use WiFi. During normal WiFi operation the device listens for management packets like beacons that are sent from WiFi access points, and this information, which is used to communicate with WiFi APs, can be used to ...

I understand this is an old question for Android 2.3.6, but changes in the Android OS relating to this question are worth mentioning. The new permissions model in Marshmallow (Android 6.0) allows you to block specific applications from using location services (which includes GPS) without rooting. Go to Settings->Apps->"Specific App Name"->Permissions. ...

Just click Back (the sideways triangle at the bottom), it should take you back to your app and just work. Note that if you are on Marshmallow, some apps do not understand the permissions (Best Buy app is like this) and it can't locate you properly. The only fix for those is to have the developer update the app for Marshmallow.

Nope. Since there isn't anything technically wrong with the gps in your phone and it's just the location of where you are that throws it off, the best thing to do is just go outside and see if the signal is stronger from outside the building or deal with it. Google maps doesn't currently have any features that allow users to correct their location. You can ...
